  • Ill check it out thanks
    I am noticing the last few days BP coffee is not keeping me satisfied for long. I wonder why?
    Really need to switch to eating a meal instead I think.

    Comment


    • I had a BP coffee an hour ago, and now I am hungry enough to actually eat eggs, and bacon. Which is unheard of, and has now pushed me over my fat for today. I was going to do a half fast, but it just wasn't going to happen. Very odd.

      • Ayla, what is your BPC recipe? I know it seems odd, but when I tried to do them as breakfast I got hungry, I now use the same basic ingredients but have added a couple of things and that sustains me.

        • The creamed coconut was dreamy - but a bit gritty. Package says it has to be refrigerated after opened, so I refrigerated... means it'll be as hard as a rock tomorrow when I want some. If I was a panda, I'd be sad. I can't wait til my coconut butter arrives!!! January 25. Counting down the days til delivery! (seven, if you're interested)

          • LOL Jenn, hopefully you enjoy it then I got some the other day, not fantastic unfortunately

            Chris I blend up a cup of plunger coffee, 2 tbs butter, and 1 tbs of coconut oil.

            • mmm, What I do is to use 1T of the butter, and 2T HWC, a few drops of stevia, and a tsp of matcha powder, in about 12 ounces of hot water and hit it with the stick blender. That is my wake up drink. Then about an hour and a half later, I mix up 2 eggs (or whey), 1C Coconut milk (carton), 1C Almond milk (both unsweetened), a few drops of stevia (I like sweet in the morning), 1T instant coffee granules, 1T MCT, and a small plash of a flavored SF syrup or a few drops of a flavoring. That easily holds me over til late afternoon.

              The original recipe called for 2T of each. The MCT, though harder to find, mixes much easier and you don't end up with a slick floating on top of the coffee. MCT is the good stuff from coconut oil I am not sure if it makes a difference in satiety, I doubt it, but who knows?

              • I do have MCT oil, and occasionally take a spoon ful when I think of it. What is matcha powder?

                Comment


                • matcha powder is green tea leaves ground to a powder. It is supposed to have more anti-oxidants than green tea because it is the whole leaf. I prefer the flavor to green tea-richer and not as grassey. I drink green tea because it acts as a diuretic and I have issues with water retention, but matcha is better (and in the end cheaper)

                  Will your macros allow you to do 2T of the MCT as a substitute for the coconut oil tomorrow as an experiment? Still using the 2T of the butter.

                  • oh yes I think I can easily do that. Ill experiment for sure, see if it is better.

                    • Hmm just put in a days food on MFP, without a BP, and having 2 eggs for a meal, and chicken thigh for another puts me over my protein for the day. But still have 50 g of fat to eat.
                      That is eating 2 eggs, scrambled with butter and cream. And broccoli with butter, and chicken thigh. It probably is enough food.
                      But damn all these numbers are freaking me out!

I think after a week of higher fat it will be easier to naturally go down, but as your body is adjusting, trying to keep calories low may be self-defeating. Also, try to make you meal times longer, to give your brain time to realize you just got 400 calories of fat.
                        this, plus: If your macros are where they should be, your calories will fall into line in my experience.

                        • I did ok today.. not as well as I would have liked though.

                          cal-1318

                          still too much protein!!

                          Speaking of BP coffee.. I have had it for the last 2 days. Yesterday, fine no problem, this morning I got hungry before 11am. It was a HUGE mug since I was in an inservice and I do not think it had enough fat! Lunch was at a diner and I had a 3 egg omelet. I should not have eaten it all, it was TOO MUCH.. weird considering I used to eat 3 eggs at a pop!

                          • Totally od'd my protein today, oops. Although my carbs were quite low... I've been getting a lot of exersize and have sore muscles, so hopefully more of that protein will go to muscle repair and not glucose?

                            • I've had to start thinking in terms of 1/2 portions of protein (meats). What I want and what I should have to stay "moderate" are 2 different things! So, I'm learning to have only 4 or 5 oz portions of meat for dinner - fatty meat if possible - or add butter to the veggies. It just takes time to get it all tweaked so it works. I've been primal for 14 months - but I'm just now finding my sweet spot for satiety and weight loss. Its been a frustrating year! but worth it! Keep working at it! you'll get there!

                              • I gotta stop the damn coffee, since its not doing anything for me now.
                                I have been so hungry all day but not wanting to eat because ive reached my fat limit. Sigh. I did not want to be in this place today.
                                Normally I would have only had a BP coffee but have had that and:
                                2 x eggs, scrambled with cream and butter, and a rasher of bacon.
                                Tuna with sour cream, and 4 cherry tomatoes.

                                I was going to have chicken soup, but smashed the glass dish in the sink while trying to break the frozen soup because I really wanted some.
                                Bahhhhh!
